Marlene

Marlene is a slim-fitting, shaped pullover with a deeply elegant v-neckline and three-quarter sleeves. Short rows dip the hip and sleeve hemlines slightly at centers, echoing the side shaping that follows body curves.  This piece is worked flat, bottom-up, and sleeves are set-in.

Decreases (ssk, k2tog, p2tog, p2tog tbl), increases (m1L, m1R), short row shaping at hemlines and shoulders, stitch pick up around neckline, 3-needle BO (at shoulders), blocking, and seaming
